Good concept, so I give em that. Not all of the games resemble good quality controls...but overall, for a goof, it's worth renting. The 2 player mode is the better mode so you can compete against friends....playing against yourself loses replay value.
Although Carnival Games was probably designed, ultimately, to be a multi-player "party game" single-players will find a lot of fun in this title thanks to its "prize mode". Game play is incredibly detailed and often fast! Nowhere is the accuracy of the Wii Remote more apparent than in Carnival Games and each Carnival Game itself is brilliantly, yet simply, described before you even begin, making this title great for all ages. Carnival Games' graphics are incredibly detailed and the user interface is easily navigated. I still find myself playing many of the Carnival Games over and over again simply for the challenge of getting better each time. It is this repetitive game play that earns Carnival Games an "8"! Have fun!
